GetLinked software provides newest point of sale integration for Seasoned Brands LLC

Software keeps financial integration quick and easy for growing franchise

September 27 – The latest interface of GetLinked® software was released and implemented by Seasoned Brands LLC (formerly Aladdin Eatery Systems, Inc.) interfacing Micros, Microsoft Dynamics GP (Great Plains) and Paychex. This software continues to provide financial integration Seasoned Brands LLC needs as they continue to franchise.

GetLinked® software has been a cost savings, allowing us to continuously update our systems without having to start over with a new interface each time.

Seasoned Brands LLC has been using GetLinked software for the past eight years to integrate their different systems. The latest version enhances the financial integration between their point-of-sale, accounting and payroll systems. It provides one software solution that includes accurate recording of transactions, payments and timekeeping. “GetLinked software has been a cost savings, allowing us to continuously update our systems without having to start over with a new interface each time.” says Fares Chamoun, VP/CFO of Seasoned Brands LLC. GetLinked continues to develop new interfaces and updates that are seamlessly added to the existing system. GetLinked will also be used in their latest success as they recently won the bid to replace McDonald’s in the Cleveland Clinic in their initiative to be leaders in health by example.

“We developed GetLinked software to be easy to install, operate and update while providing consistent and accurate integration between systems.” says Jim DeFede, a development manager for GetLinked. This interface is just one of the solutions to keep the process fast, reliable and very affordable. GetLinked allows Seasoned Brands LLC better control of their POS data and eliminates hours of manual work.

Rustic Canyon Family of Restaurants

“I see it as a very important element in helping to make our business run smoothly and efficiently.” Michael Vodde, Controller

Company Profile

Rustic Canyon Family of Restaurants includes Rustic Canyon / Huckleberry / Milo & Olive / Sweet Rose Creamery.

Rustic Canyon Wine Bar & Seasonal Kitchen grew from a series of dinners that founder Josh Loeb held inside his family’s beautiful tree house of a home nestled in Rustic Canyon, an intimate neighborhood carved into the mountains of Santa Monica. Every month lovers of quality food and wine gathered around a long, candlelit table to share the joy of a meal created with thought and passion. New friends were made. Stories were told. Favorite new wines were discovered. Rustic Canyon Wine Bar & Seasonal Kitchen became an extension of this and the other restaurants quickly followed suit.

Situation

As the sole Controller for a fast-growing organization, I quickly discovered that I would not be able to keep up with the work-load as we expanded. I could envision that an integration solution was possible and started asking around to see if anyone knew of one that existed. The representative from our POS system told me about GetLinked.

After reading about GetLinked I didn’t really consider any other solutions.

Business Solution

The daily sales reports are now all automatically imported using GetLinked. We are still manually entering vendor invoices and daily cash transactions but are on the verge of automating them as well. Payroll is done by an outside vendor and is manually entered in the aggregate at this point although an automated integration of that data may be on the horizon as we expand.

Benefits

I would say that I save about an hour per week per location by importing the Daily Sales Reports.

“What was surprising was how great their technical staff was and how great the customer experience was. I wasn’t surprised at the technology.”

Their customer service is top-notch. Knowledgeable, friendly and available.  Downloading the app was a breeze and the very proficient rep easily remotely completed the set-up.

Laguna Development Corporation

“GetLinked software saves us hours of rekeying data and verifies transactions before they reach our accounting system” John Root - Laguna Development Corporation

Company Profile

Laguna Development Corporation was established in 1999 to manage the casino and retail businesses owned by the Pueblo of Laguna. Their diverse businesses are all conveniently located off Interstate 40 West of Albuquerque. Employing 1200 people, they are a major employment provider in the area with a reputation for providing quality products in a friendly, impeccable atmosphere.

Located in Albuquerque, New Mexico Laguna Development Corporation operates a casino comprised of 11 revenue centers and 26 purchasing centers. These centers include a casino, RV Park, Fueling Station, C-Store, Ace Hardware, Taco Bell, Dairy Queen, Grocery Store, Snack Bar, Gift Shop, Video Rental, Arcade and more.

Situation

Laguna Development had a staff spending 40+ hours a week manually rekeying their daily sales and purchases. The original accounting processes were very inconsistent. They explored the option of internal programming to create a custom solution.

The Laguna Development staff were manually rekeying the daily sales and purchases for all the different revenues and cost centers from reports. They considered developing their own internal system for all the different transactions, but decided to use GETLinked™ Software connected to four different systems. Their existing systems included micros® Point Sale and Sale, Store Chek Point of Sale, CBORD Purchasing system and MAS200 Financial Accounting system.

Business Solution

GetLinked was a great solution for Laguna. GetLinked allows them to get their data from their 11 revenue centers with the GetLinked software (Sales and Payroll) and keep track of their 26 purchasing centers with GetLinked APLink module (Payables) all with one piece of software.

Edward Khater along with the management at Laguna Development decided to implement GETLinked™. John Root was in charge of implementing the system and worked with GETLinked™ staff to complete the implementation. The solution implemented electronically transfers all the daily sales, payroll and purchases within the different systems to GETLinked™ software. GETLinked™ software converts the data into valid accounting transactions and transfers them into the appropriate MAS200 modules of General Ledger, Payroll and Payables.

Benefits

GetLinked has saved Laguna Development time by allowing their data to be automatically transferred into their accounting with speed and accuracy. This has enabled the company to replace the work of 3-4 employees spending over 40 hours a week with one employee.

GetLinked™ has benefited Laguna Development in many ways: It has reduced the cost of manually rekeying data, eliminated the amount of human errors, increased the accuracy of data and saved money with the speed of transferring data into their accounting system. All of this leads to decreased labor costs and increased profitability.

CHEESEBURGER RESTAURANTS

Cheese Burger Restaurants LogoSorry I haven’t had a chance to call you after the payroll setup was complete.

It has been running great and we now have all 7 restaurants doing the payroll through GETLinked. We have had very few issues which Buddy has been able to handle for the most part.

I wanted to tell you that I attended a restaurant seminar yesterday, and of course, got to talk about your software to some of the attendees. I spent the most time with a group of CPA’s and accountants who have restaurant owners as clients. So, I hope you get lots of business going your way.

I love talking about all the things it will do for them and I love seeing the look on their faces.

MONACO PICTURES

Monaco Pictures LogoAfter using GetLinked Software for over 6 years, I wanted to take a moment to say thank you, and congratulations, for delivering a solid solution.

We have been using GetLinked to import all of our restaurant sales data into our accounting platform, Great Plains. The process is seamless and allows for the level of detail we need for our reporting purposes. Importing and transferring the data is completed in just a few steps and creates the journal entry that, in the end, generates the reporting data we need to make better management decisions

As a company that runs with very minimal administrative personnel, your solutions suit us perfectly. The setup with your technical team is really simple and fast. Other than when we were setting up on a new system, I can say we have not needed a single support call ... ever. That speaks volumes to the quality and reliability of your product.

We really love the subscription model that is offered. Often times, solutions have huge upfront costs, followed by expensive maintenance contracts. GetTLinked process is simple; a nominal annual fee for a solid solution. I can say with confidence when comparing custom written interface programs for integration, they come at a price that is far greater than six years of renewal costs.

With the success we have had with the POSLink, we have just recently started using the PRLink to automate our payroll. I can tell you after two months of using it, we will have saved more in labor costs, usually spent on processing payroll manually, than the cost of the annual subscription. Again, for a company that runs with a very lean administrative staff, this solution not only saves us money, but will free up time to be spent on other projects

Congratulations again for delivering such a quality product. If I can ever be used as a reference for potential users, feel free to send them my way.

THE PIADA GROUP

The Piada Group LogoAs our organization continues to grow, I am continuously looking for ways to effectively leverage overhead by improving the efficiency of our accounting department.

With the use of GetLinked software I am able to electronically import our daily sales transactions in a fraction of the time that it would take to manually enter. I cannot say enough great things about how much this product has improved the integration of our POS and accounting systems.

GetLinked’s support has been superior with helping me with all my needs. If any issue ever arises, which is infrequent, it is resolved within 24 hours or sooner.

I would highly recommend the use of this software to any restaurant that wants to automate the flow of sales information and do so with minimal headache.

DCRS SOLUTIONS

DCRS LogoIn the world today, people are often quick to point out problems and deficiencies, and rarely take the time to recognize things done well.

Since we have worked with you at Accounting Solutions, Inc. for many years, this note is long overdue. We cannot say enough about the recent “problem solving” that you, your staff, and your GetLinked Software provided to one of our largest accounts.

As you know, this 10,000 seat arena, with a 50 terminal MICROS 9700 system, had some very specific needs when it came to payroll export and interface. Without your multiple solutions, some key personnel at this customer site would not be near as happy! Although a very large team of ours was responsible for much of the success at this large arena project, your solutions helped insure the site’s final satisfaction.

You have a great product at a reasonable price, but your knowledge of customer integration needs, and your delivery, always make it easy for me to refer other POS dealers to you.

Rest assured that I will continue to refer dealers and customers to you.

Thanks again for taking care of our customer.
